There's another, (in my opinion more interesting), class of dead-code
and that's the stuff that's compiled in but isn't called by anything.

I've yet to get in gear and get up-to-date runs for LibreOffice, but see
http://people.redhat.com/caolanm/callcatcher/DEV300_m87/ for my last OOo
callcatcher run. e.g. approx 170 apparently juicy unused methods in

Though caveats apply and manual double checking is required to see why
nothing calls them. They might be called only under some ifdefs, or by
some tricky means like dlopen/dlsym (which is only likely to happen for
C symbols and not C++ symbols, noone in their right mind dlsyms
